Rebuild Energy and Endurance at Any Age 7.11.23

with Carole Freeman


Yes, it’s true, you can, literally, breathe new life into your body. Every cell in your body is dependent on oxygen to create energy. And the amount of oxygen available to every cell in your body and brain is dependent on the quality of your breathing pattern and function. This class will train you, and your entire respiratory system, to be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all those cells. Whether you're an athlete or not, the secret to greater strength and endurance starts, and ends, with the strength of your respiratory system.
